Year of Beer Paintings – Day 342

The featured beer painting is of Quadwood, a Belgian Quadrupel aged in American Oak barrels, by Perrin Brewing Company in Comstock Park, Michigan. My friend Josh brought this bottle for this project from his trip to MI. I have been saving it for several months, and finally opened it at the Great Northern Brewers Club holiday party on Saturday night to share with a group of really fun beer drinkers.

The beer is mahogany brown with a creamy tan foam layer that lingers for a few minutes. The oak flavor is mellow, and the beer is very well balanced, and full of fig and raisin flavors. At just a little under 9% AVB, it wasn’t too strong. Most of the beers at the GNBC party were above 10%, and I kept thinking that this is going to be a very short, and not so gentle, journey. Fellow homebrewers were impressed by this brew, and I was glad I saved it for the party. I painted four different types of wood in the background, inspired by the beer’s name.

Cheers to the Quadwood! Great job, Perrin Brewing! Yes, please, I will have more of your beer. Can’t wait until I go to Michigan!

The original painting sold. You can purchase a limited-edition print, or order a custom beer painting at my Etsy shop.
